The Society has now released some puzzles for home use based on existing FunMaths Roadshow puzzles. The Roadshow remains on sale and purchasers are welcome to adapt problems for online or home use. We are planning to release a selection of puzzles online with guidance for how they may be used in teaching.

The Christmas lecture will consist #of#two#30 minute#talks#by#Colin#Wright#and##Yolanda#Ohene# on 11 December. Two lectures are planned for the early part of 2021, namely the Presidential lectures of Anna Pratoussevitch and Gaynor Bahan; these may well be held online.

Open Challenge will be as normal and the Pop Maths Quiz will take place in some form, so we should have a full programme of activities in 2020/21.

The LivMS Bursary Fund (charity no. 1156909) remains open for business. The next deadline is 31 January 2021 (urgent applications will be considered on a first come first served basis). The Bursary Fund has been fully funded by the Society since its inception but this funding is currently in doubt, so donations to the Fund would be gratefully received. If you would like to donate, please email for details.

Welcome to the Liverpool Mathematical Society

FunMaths Roadshow activities for use at home

FMR Home Activities

These activities are free of charge.

Teachers may make puzzles from this collection available to students in their schools for use on screen or after printing out.

Parents and pupils may access these puzzles directly at home, and should first read the Notes for Guidance.

Answers to the puzzles are provided, and there is a feedback form so you can get in touch with us.

The FunMaths Roadshow continues to be on sale during the COVID-19 crisis by download only (no CDs). You can see all the details here.


Membership of the Society is particularly important at this time as our funding for the future is in doubt, so please join if you can. If you are able to pay more than the standard subscription, any additional amount paid will be treated as a donation, for which the Society will be most grateful.

Click Membership to find out more - save by taking out a 5-year subscription. There is a reduced rate for ATM, MA and U3A members and also those who live at a distance and do not wish to attend meetings.
